[movies]The Sunbeam - D W Griffith
The Sunbeam was directed by D W Griffith in 1912. When a film called The Sunbeam refers to a little girl with a dead mother, you know you are in for a bit of sentimentality and so you are. But given that, it is a neat little film with an interesting picture of life in a tenement house and the social mores of the day.

[movies]Scarlet Street - D. W. Griffith
Scarlet Street - D W Griffith - 1919 - From IMDB "A romantic bandit named Alvarez, wanted for raids on the mining camps of the California gold rush in 1849, is reformed by the love of a good woman." I am not sure why I am uploading this film. It is considered by many to be Griffith's worst. Perhaps history drives me. At any rate you have been warned.

[movies]A Beast at Bay - D W Griffith
A Beast at Bay was directed by D W Griffith in 1912. It stars Mary Pickford as the girl. These pictures were made so quickly, averaging two a week, that there are always errors that are allowed to pass. For example the tramp who tries to start a fight is almost off camera. But there are also regular advances in film technique. The cutting between the train and the cars, or the point of view shot when the hero looks through the binoculars.

[movies]The Unseen Enemy - D W Griffith
The Unseen Enemy, Directed by D W Griffith in 1912 is the first film to star Lilian and Dorothy Gish in what were termed at the time"charming" performances. It is a simple melodrama with threat and rescue but played nicely. Victoriuanism prevails. Note the use of the idea of the kiss and how Dorothy reacts to her first kiss in the final few fading frames.

The Oath and the Man was directed by D W Griffith in 1910. Griffith is often out of his depth when he goes far back in history. Herein he trivializes the French revolution. Before you criticize him, though, remember he was making two or three of these a week. If you get a few laughs, you will be laughing at it not with it

How could you ask for more in about 10 minutes The switchman is played, by the way, by henry B Warthall who later starred in Birth of an Nation. I found this film under D W Griffith films and first listed it as such. It certainly looks like Griffith and includes a number of his regular players, but I bow to Wikileaks and IMBD

[movies]House of Darkness
The House of Darkness was directed by D.W. Griffith for the Biograph Company in 1913. Its theme is how music soothes the insane mind. It deals with an escaped mental patient who threatens a woman with a gun, but backs off when she plays the piano for him. It is sentimental ad many of Griffith's films are but the acting is a bit subdued for the silent film of the period. It is worth a look.
